Barre Fitness Workouts every Wednesday at 11 am
What is our Barre Workout?
Looking to stay fit this year? Spend your Wednesdays at our Barre class. Class begins at 11 am. Our barre master teaches a combination of fit techniques and postures inspired by ballet to improve your concentration, focus and trigger weight loss, cellulite reduction, and increase bone health. You'll learn ways to increase balance, strength training, and target core muscles in a fun, social atmosphere.
When taking a barre or a ballet class, the student needs to be aware of where he/she is in relation to others, in the room and how his/her body is moving. There are many specific movements of the hands and feet that are learned. This requires memorization and learning how to sequence movements. These skills can help children and adults with ADD or ADHD, as well as anyone who wants to improve memory.
Through barre fitness and ballet, you will create an outlet for emotional expression. Using your body to express emotions helps to integrate the mind and the body. There is much being written these days on the relationship between unexpressed emotions and chronic pain. Through the integration and expression of emotions, we are able to move through emotional distress, and possibly through the causes of chronic pain and other disease. Barre fitness and ballet can help ease depression and anxiety by increasing the neurotransmitter serotonin. Many anti-depressant medications act specifically on serotonin. These same medications are given to people for eating disorders, PMS, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia and other things. In our dance experience, we find many newcomers are low in serotonin. If there are natural ways to increase this neurotransmitter, it is worth trying!
